“Weekend reads” hasn’t quite found its groove – would you prefer to get a distilled version of the week’s top stories (as decided by me) on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday? Let me know in the comments; I’m keen to know what readers would prefer. I love these kinds of digests, but I think I like them on a Saturday morning when I have a few spare minutes to sit down and dedicate myself fully to what I call “reading the internet”. Without further ado:

I picked out 10 Irish Instagrammers you really should be following on Wednesday – and Twitter was alight with thanks from those implicated, and objections from those who disagreed with what was, admittedly, a very Dublin-centric list. Anybody you’d add?

Natalie Massenet was named chairman of the British Fashion Council – a move that marks a definite embracing of the digital era and an interesting and, if Massenet’s previous form is anything to go by, innovative step by the BFC. Watch this space.

New York Fashion Week kicked off and the Man Repeller was there. She has the low down on an impressive number of shows from day two.

Anna dello Russo is gearing up for her October H&M release with a crazy video, Fashion Shower. In it, she maintains that fashion is freedom. But do you agree?

Nico Lang of the Huffington Post wrote possibly the most important piece of writing you’ll find relating to the Kristen Stewart affair story.

Speaking of HuffPo, I’ve started doing a little bit of blogging over on their UK site. I started off with a piece about why I’m going back to blonde.

DKNYPRGirl has started her hilarious show-request-themed posts, just in time for NYFW. Brilliant.

Lastly, Lorna from Styleisle has done a cute post with the Boohoo.com A/W lookbook, styling up her favourite pieces into ready-made outfits. Smart.

Bon weekend, kittens!
